Habib Umar trans Sheikh Yahya Rhodus 18-07

Arif Al Marif (dowra notes part one)

Chapter; The Sufis will be in a good state until they accept the bad things

May Allah protect and establish the schools

So we can preserve the deen

Beneficial knowledge will be taught

Not for other reason except to get close to Allah Subhnau wa Ta'ala

The people who will have the most remorse on the day of the judgement are the ones who had the opportunity to study but didn’t

If you have the ability to study use it

Use it as a means to get closer to Allah Subhnau wa Ta'ala

And we ask him to purify our intentions

When the ignorant people sat they sat, because they sought knowledge for an ulterior motives and are not sincere

This person only is veiled and gains nothing except distance

If he has a bad opinion of people he could be cut off from blessings

We have to see the blessing of the people off our time and not expect too much

The reality is that if someone sees something outside that he doesn’t its because of the reality of the time that we are in

The one people who arrive to Allah Subhanu wa Ta'ala are the ones who Allah Subhnau wa Ta'ala wishes to arrive to him

The early people had aspects of the legality and they had a pure human nature

A good opinion strengths his heart and he had a bad opinion it will be bad for him

There is benefit in having good opinion for a person but don’t help a person to do bad (evil)

Allah Subhanu wa Ta'ala will give you help if you do this

If you have a bad opinion then this is bad manners, if the person who has a bad opinion is wrong when he right. As is illustrated when Osama ibn zaid (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him) killed the person who said the Shahada

Don’t spy on your neighbours

The person who thinks he is better than others, will be the first to be destroyed

The Sahileen are those who see their deficiencies

The righteous are the ones who don’t belittle others

The people of truth don’t think about harming other people and don’t think about attaining something by taking it from others, this is brotherhood

We don’t mean everyone has to have the same madhab etc, in the time of the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) there were different opinions and he (peace and blessings upon him) confirmed them all

The one who says we have to get rid of the legal opinions (schools) is the one who hasn’t thought about it well

We have outward difference but we have mercy in our hearts and we are united under the shahada

Its incumbent to get together for the sake of Allah Subanu wa Ta'ala

To unify the Muslims is not to remove what differs but to arrange things to work together and have a mutual organisation and the respect each and help each other

The Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) said, “Indeed, the believer are like one body. If one part is in pain then the whole body is in pain.” Whoever who doesn’t feel the pain of the Muslims, he could be sick and he feels the pain of the tribulation of the Muslims

Just as you see the evil people spread drugs, tribalism, nationalism amongst the earth, its as if they want the Muslim body to be paralysed and not feel a thing

Its customary for them to rectify the wrong beliefs of a member

If we get people to differ this will bring people to differ and satan will enter

The Sufis will be in a good state until they accept the bad things

None of them will get the doors open if they differ and they will force apologies from others

Umar ibn Khattab ( May Allah be pleased with him ) said, “May Allah be merciful for the one who shows me my faults.”

As if a scorpion is on your shoulder or in your bed, our faults are like scorpion in our graves we should be grateful for someone who points out your faults

Umar (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him) once asked Salman al Farsi (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him) about his faults, who refused at first and when Umar (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him) insisted, Salman (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him) said you eat two loaves and change your clothes in the middle of the day. Umar (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him) said that after today both these things will stop.

Where is the Mutual advice of today?

May Allah be merciful to persons who gives me a gift by showing me my faults

This is how Umar (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him) used to gather the companions (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with them) and ask then he used ask, if he could accept some dispensations, they said that they would correct him and he was very happy with them

If someone comes to you with fire in his heart and you must put out his fire with the water from your heart and don’t add fire from your heart

The sign of bad character is if we complain about others bad character, if we hide other faults and this is better for us

Its upon the sheikh to rebuke the students who rebuke people with his naafs, why didn’t you approach that person with your heart? Good and evil are not equal, repel evil with good

The Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) said, “Show mercy you and will be shown mercy.”

If a brother who doesn’t accept an apology he gets a sin upon him

Its dangerous for a person not to accept an apology

Don’t have anything in your heart and a person who goes to someone and apologise that person will have his heart enlighten by Allah

The person who doesn’t accept the sin of his brother

The Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) said, “The person who doesn’t accept the excuse of a person. Will not come to my hawd, let him find another hawd.”
